Six more days

Six more days until

-this “American carnage” ends

-“I am always thinking” can contemplate golf, or prison, or his taxes, or his favorite daughter

-“Everyone’s leaving” the most corrupt administration in America history

-A president will take the pandemic seriously and not merely tell people to wear a mask “if it makes you feel comfortable”

-A “hunch” will not override science

-No one has to contemplate what the hell “a ship ventilation system is very much — they circularize. And they are very much under review, to be honest with you” means.

-The three-times married, twice-impeached, one-term blowhard exits the political stage

And one can hope that even with a Senate trial likely to end in acquittal that Americans learn how eager this tyrant was to lead a coup so he could remain in power.

(Here’s the link to the some of the quotes, and here’s the link to the others. *The carnage comment comes from his inauguration address, which isn’t included in these two links.)

Jared Kushner. Easily manipulated?

The New York Times has the story.

Given Mr. Kushner’s political inexperience, the private exchanges could make him susceptible to Saudi manipulation, said three former senior American officials. In an effort to tighten practices at the White House, a new chief of staff tried to reimpose longstanding procedures stipulating that National Security Council staff members should participate in all calls with foreign leaders.

But even with the restrictions in place, Mr. Kushner, 37, and Prince Mohammed, 33, kept chatting, according to three former White House officials and two others briefed by the Saudi royal court. In fact, they said, the two men were on a first-name basis, calling each other Jared and Mohammed in text messages and phone calls.

The exchanges continued even after the Oct. 2 killing of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist who was ambushed and dismembered by Saudi agents, according to two former senior American officials and the two people briefed by the Saudis.

Should I stay or should I go now?

If I go there will be trouble…if I stay it will be double!

Remember that old song? Well, sadly it’s being sung today (or should be sung today!) by Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. I suggested — tongue-in-cheek, by the way — that Blagojevich couldn’t possibly be impeached at this point, but there’s no doubt that he would do the good folks of Illinois a huge favor by walking away.
